My husband and I came to Canada over 40 years ago from Holland. This traditional Dutch recipe is a family favorite and frequently goes along with me to potluck suppers and other get-togethers. —Elizabeth Peters, Martintown, Ontario

"Thank you for sharing your recipe! This has become a new favorite! The only thing I've done different is folding the apples into the mixture and pour it into a Bundt pan. I also have made this with blueberries instead of apples following the same recipe and it came out fantastic!"

"Delicious cake, tender and moist, not dry at all like some said. They must have measured wrong."

"I will make this cake again, but I'm going to do as some of the reviews say, and layer the batter and apples. All of my apples were on the top of the cake, not throughout the cake like the picture. But the cake had lovely flavor and my husband loved it!"
